Juniper Networks Inc.'s (>> Juniper Networks, Inc.) fourth-quarter earnings edged down 0.5% as stronger router sales helped balance weaker spending on switches by some big enterprise customers.

KLA-Tencor Corp.'s (>> KLA-Tencor Corporation) fiscal second-quarter earnings fell 3.8% as rising costs outpaced higher revenue at the semiconductor-equipment company.

Moody's Investors Service has boosted the outlook for Valmont Industries Inc. (>> Valmont Industries, Inc.) to positive from stable, citing improved profitability over the past year and expectations of moderate global growth.

W.R. Grace & Co. (>> W.R. Grace & Co.) said it will record a smaller-than-expected $365 million pre-tax charge in the fourth quarter related to the specialty chemical company's increased asbestos-related liability.
